Απομυθοποιώντας το ψευδοειρηνόφιλο πνεύμα των ημερών

Greg Lake - I Believe In Father Christmas
1975
Μια ευθεία αντιπολεμική δήλωση,
που αμφισβητεί το ψευδοειρηνόφιλο
πνεύμα των ημερών , που καλλιεργεί το κυρίαρχο
σύστημα των υποκριτών χριστιανών. 

Released in the latter part of 1975, Greg Lake’s “I Believe In Father Christmas” was the UK festive number 2 in that year and has been a holiday staple ever since. The video was shot on the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and near where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found on the West Bank. The song has been covered by many artists including U2, Gaz Coombes of Supergrass, Susan Boyle and Elaine Paige and was also recorded by Greg’s band Emerson Lake And Palmer in 1977 and 1993.

They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin birth
I remember one Christmas morning
A winter's light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire
They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story
'Till I believed in the Israelite
And I believed in father Christmas
And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise
I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave new year
All anguish, pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
Hallelujah, Noel be it heaven or hell
The Christmas we get we deserve
